Well... what do you think about this new moto related show?
Myself, I thought it was a show with very little substance.
seemed more like a big commercial.

I was disappointed as well. I took me a few minutes to realize I was actually watching the show and not a parts unlimited commercial. It is better than the usual crap that's on on sunday morning.

the show was decent, give parts unlimited a break will ya, they wanted to get out in the first episode who was bringing this programing (wich by the way we are all dying for) to you. if you where paying attention they plan to cover alot. I for one gave feed back on spike tv's web site to let them know we appreciate there efforts and look forward to expanded coverage. Remeber speed tv cut back on there motorcycling shows because of lack of interest. Instead of bashing it and not watching it why not go give some positive critisism (note this does not mean saying it sucks, but suggesting how they could improve it). Remeber bad publicity could have this show and any attempts of further shows from being pulled, and you will have nothing once again.

Also remember sportbike riders are the minority, there a more cruiser/dirt/sport touring riders then sportbikes so the show is not going to be dedicated to just sportbikes it would not draw a big crowd.

I for one am happy to see the show and hope to see more of it!

Ok, I watched it, I tried to keep it an open mind, and I know sport bike riders are in the minority, but they basically ignored us I thought the show was big TV ad I will watch again, I'm willing to give it another chance. But the first show was

At 11am, there was a show on Spike TV called Top Dead Center that tested the Aprilia RSV and had a segment about a motorcycle distance jumper. I am not sure what the show's focus is and whether they plan to highlight motorcycles every week. It may be worth checking out or taping next week.

I saw Naked's thread on top dead center and I was pissed that I missed it. I checked tvguide.com and its coming on tomorrow, 1/4/04(i've stopped trying to keep track of what day of the week it is), at 10am. I'll have to check it out.

I agree with most the comments . 1 big commercial. But like jim said its the first episode and PA wants to get the name out there. I see alot of potential for it. Just need to tone down the add portion. I thought the actual content was good. Look forward to the tech tips.

I'm just happy to watch a show about motorcycles. Yeah I wish there were more sport bikes, but like Jim said, we are a minority.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
